The construction of the water and sewerage system on the Thuraakunu island in the Haa Alifu atoll is fully funded by the Ali Fulhu Thuhthu Foundation (AFTF) in cooperation with the national government and the island council. It is the first project carried out with the assistance of an independent company, the Altec Maldives Pvt under a design and build contract signed on in June 2014.
The project foresees laying down sewerage pipes, establishing sewage pump stations, connecting the houses, and installing a sea outfall system. It also includes building rainwater storage tanks and an administrative building. The water component is due to be completed by October 2015, while the sanitation unit will be finalised by April 2016.
